There’s something about a printed floral skirt that makes us smile. Seeing one signifies the advent of spring: unbuttoning our jackets, unzipping our boots, and putting our sweaters back in the “winter” drawer.

I dread being a bridesmaid. When a close friend announces her engagement, amidst the celebration and “oohs” and “ahhs” over the ring, I am secretly praying, “God, I hope she doesn’t ask me to be a bridesmaid.” Is that totally mean? It’s not because I don’t want to be a part of my friend’s big day. On the contrary, I think being chosen as a bridesmaid is a very special and touching thing. No, my bridesmaidophobia (not a real word … YET) stems from one thing and one thing only: the atrocious bridesmaid dress.

I knew for certain that my best gals would not be walking down the aisle in shapeless satin gowns chosen to match the chartreuse table linens. They are all beautiful women, both inside and out, and I want them to feel gorgeous and comfortable as they accompany me down the aisle on my big day.
After pouring over numerous bridal blogs and message boards, I’m happy to report that there are plenty of ways to dress your bridal party while avoiding the standard bridal shop selections. After the jump, the perfect bridesmaids’ dresses for every type of bride.

Coral is quintessentially a warm-weather hue, and it’s versatile, too. Pick a shade that’s bright and you’ll get noticed. Or, go for something a little more subdued for just a touch of color. Click through for the perfect coral lipsticks and glosses for every skin tone.
In a couple of weeks, I’ll be heading to sunny Las Vegas to spend a weekend with a group of my favorite lady friends. I’ve been hitting the gym religiously and slathering on the self-tanner to ensure I’ll be confident among the sweaty masses hanging by the pool. The last step in my Sin City preparation is finding a bathing suit that makes me feel chic and comfortable. Click through to see this year’s swimsuit trends.
